In 2012, a semi-professional team emerged taking the name Huntsville Rockets to pay homage to the original Huntsville Rockets Football team. In its inaugural season the Rockets won the NDFL Championship. They went on to win the 2012 BCS Semi Pro National Championship, defeating the Killeen Revolution (54-6). In 2013 the Huntsville Rockets had a similar journey but came up short, losing in the 2013 BCS Semi Pro National Championship to the Tennessee Crush (16-14). In 2014 the club finished with a 7-5 record but ownership restructuring left the team dormant in 2015.
